Have not updated this recently so I thought it was about time I did

Here is the most recent pic of him just on his return from HRE

Image

I must admit since his return all that has happened is he was put in the back garden but thats mainly due to the crap weather we have had over and since christmas

Paul Had to heat the clutch off and after that it was a straight forward replacement (I believe..I wasnt there)

Thanks to Paul for your help

So awaiting better weather He sits in the back garden and when it arrives he will get a new starter a new exhaust and I think ill have to take a look at the shocks as when i took him off the trailor he was very low at the back.
Oh yeah and put in an engine mount

Ive also acquired a set of tires thats are better than the half bald ones that are on him :lol

So thats it for now

looking forward to better weather so I can get stuck into him

Im eager to do the MTM this year so we will see

Logged on for the first time in ages today and saw that there was a Portlaoise run coming up so out I popped to see Stobart

The last two winters in Portlaoise have not been good to him so Im gonna try and get some work done to him dont think he will make the day itself but its a start

at least he is clean now after about an inch of moss was taken off him
